Best In State

“If you dream of living in an artsy coastal town, consider Bay St. Louis. In Old Town, wander the shops, galleries, and restaurants along Main Street, Second Street, and Beach Boulevard, and check out the municipal pier and harbor, which opened a few years ago. Or ramble the  L&N Train Depot  (which houses the  Bay St. Louis Mardi Gras Museum and  Alice Moseley Folk Art Museum). Because of its proximity to New Orleans and affordable real estate, you’ll find lots of commuters mingling with NOLA ex-pats and artists who wouldn’t dream of settling elsewhere. A pedestrian-friendly downtown makes it easy to meander the galleries and restaurants without a car. Or stay put at  Sycamore House  for a few hours and savor their shrimp and grits platter; it’s one of the best in the state.”
